"Since we began franchising in 2011, Chicken Salad Chick has made great strides in expanding to new markets across the Southeast and this is another testament to the success of our growth strategy," said Scott Deviney, chief executive officer of Chicken Salad Chick. "The recently opened Oxford location has already proven to be highly successful, and we're confident that the brand will be just as well received by the Olive Branch community. There's tremendous opportunity for us to propel our growth efforts in Mississippi, and we look forward to expanding our footprint throughout the state with our unique menu offerings and unmatched customer service."
The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, Ala., was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has more than 65 restaurants across the Southeast.
Chicken Salad Chick in Olive Branch will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.chickensaladchick.com, or call 662-890-0432. Follow Chicken Salad Chick on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
